OW 🐠, how is the culture? Do you travel a lot? Is it common to work on strategy projects or is it more likely to be staffed on implementation?
FTW: W Hotel in Chicago gives free equinox access during visit. Now I only need time for the gym.
Has anyone flown westjet? Trying to go to canada and thats the only option for return flights that doesn’t cost $1000+ for non-stop air canada/united. P.S. not flexing as I’m local 😞
If anyone has spare Delta drink today they don’t plan on using, I’d appreciate it greatly if you’d be willing to share! On a redeye and a bit nervous about flying, wasn’t able to get an upgrade to C+
Looking for opinions on splitting travel costs! My brother, sister-in-law, and I all split a single hotel room (2 double beds) on a recent trip. Should I end up paying 33% or 50% of the hotel room?
Anyone know if the new Amex Plat 5x MR points for air includes our corporate cards? I've found the benefits all don't always carry over. http://about.americanexpress.com/news/pr/2016/new-travel-benefits-for-amex-platinum.aspx
Got a message saying I could change my United flight with no change fee because of an itinerary change. I checked and there are fully refundable rates I could change to (current rate is not fully refundable). Couldn't I change it to a fully refundable rate then... Get a full refund? What's the catch? Is it that normally you would pay $200 change fee to go to a fully refundable fare? In that case it still seems better than losing your entire fare in the case you really can't make a flight.
Good poisoning from hotel restaurant and AC is broken in room.... how many points do I ask for?

I asked the waitress at my hotel bar what time her shift was ending so we could hang out, and she shut me down. I think she did so because I was wearing my MAGA hat. How many points should I demand?
What's the likelihood of getting an I-131 advanced parole approved if you travel overseas while the application is pending? I heard stories that some people still got theirs approved after traveling overseas
New welcome offer for Amex plat with 100,000 MR on 5K first 6 months compared to CSR 50,000 UR on 4k first 3 months. Is this a no brainer here? Currently have the Amex Hilton and Discover it. Main spending will be groceries, gas, and personal travel. Thoughts?
Anyone else feel odd when separated from their spouse post-pandemic? I have always been wildly independent - solo travel, full life, separate friends - but after being in the same space nonstop during the pandemic, I find it so hard to leave him for work or personal travel. I even miss him after nights out with friends! What is wrong with me? Anyone else?
That time when Delta had to re-park the plane to get closer to the gate and I almost missed my connecting flight. Happy ending but come on, Delta! 😡
Copying a similar post... can anyone speak to what the culture and busy season are like in London for FS? I’m considering a rotation and wondering if it’s worth it.

My firm is giving out surprise mid year bonuses to associates hitting the prorated annual bonus cutoff. I had a major injury for which I worked through treatments for about 3 months Jan-March. I didn’t take any time off, but I did set hard boundaries to make it to PT and medical appointments and not overwhelm myself. I’m off by 50+ hours to the target to receive bonus. Do I say something about being ineligible for the bonus or let it slide since it’s a big gap?
I’m looking at an opportunity at Crowe. What is the environment, culture, people and work life balance like at Crowe in Bay Area location? How is the firm Perk and Benefits?
Been working for KPMG for 1 year and 10 months right after Non-MBA Masters. Want to jump ship to the other Big 3 very very soon. Should I apply/ am I eligible for senior roles? Especially Deloitte/PwC
Five emails from recruiters this week. I want to reply to three of them, but I've only been in public for 11 months (including my internship). 😟
It's finally happened. I can feel that I have given up. The breaking point? My CD making a big deal out of having a call on Saturday at 1 pm to look over a deck that was due this morning. I rearrange my schedule. I move my kids piano lesson. I stay up until 2 the night before making sure everything is in line. He never calls. Doesn't respond to my text. I send him the deck and he doesn't respond until Sunday afternoon. Then gets pissy when I say I can't hop on the phone at that exact moment.
Looking for techniques to help one of my writers stop writing things (email copy, VO, etc.) super straight. Anyone have any tips, resources, or tricks to help someone fun up their writing?
Last night's buy at 3096 goes 1.5 points over the objective that I called last night in Europe. There were two HWB long buying opportunities last night. New Target 3159.25 probably hit in today's NY session. We are trading Micro HWB's right now. Basically, we are goin to hit new highs and create a potential double top situation. Be careful being long at that new objective. If it's a dip into new highs situation, we could sell off violently, like we did yesterday. Bullish Above 3126.
I just barely started at my firm and got staffed on a project which requires travel. My firm only allows me to expense hotels on a personal card, everything else goes on the corporate Amex. I’ve had a venture one card for 2 years now but am thinking about getting the chase sapphire reserve. Kind of lost here - any advice?

Slalom consultants, do you have to live in one of their main locations, or can you WFH in any city you choose? I live in a smaller town and want to stay.
Any tricks to converting your Amex points into gift cards or some equivalent to get a better Amazon conversion? $70 for 10k points seems weak when a lot of the retailers do $100 for 10k.
That feeling when you look at the end result and realize the client has sucked the soul out of your idea.
